Not bloody likely.
Most cars can decelerate from 60-0 in less
than 200 feet. Care to accelerate 0-60 in less than 200 feet?
In addition, you were trying to stop your car,
already going some speed. The UI reports were
of monster cars that could accelerate from a stop
with the brakes on full.
Certainly it would be more difficult to stop
a car urnning full in 2nd. I trust, however,
that you didn;t really test this very well.
You did keep your wits and turn off the key,
